Check the Status of your License

Please do not contact us to check the status of an application. During this time, we are not able to provide immediate responses regarding application status. Instead, we ask that you check the status of your pending license on the Department of Health's Provider Credential Search. A customer service representative will email you detailed instructions if anything is missing from your application. Healthcare facilities are communicating directly with the Nursing Commission regarding expediting applications for COVID-19 response.

Search for your name and status:

Please note, the Provider Credential Search will not detail what is missing from your application. If you are missing anything from your application, we will email you directly.
